Zach and suter will be signed pretty quick. A lot of teams will be waiting to see where they go before making other decisions.

He's a lazy floater that had 2 seasons of crap play and showed up in the playoffs for a few games - you want to pay $4M+ for that?

I would not mind taking Jarret Stoll. He has great faceoffability, in which we all know the Devils need, and as he showed in the finals, he is a very good PK man. That is if Suter signs somewhere else.

i dont think i see i said anywhere that i expect that to happen. anyone that actually expects that is outside their mind

you obviously make the good point that we are at the point where we really need to think about our goalie but you can't deny that singing zach and suter would be a huge free agency

A Zach resigning and the addition of a guy like Harding would be a pretty successful free agency. But I wouldn't be shocked to see moose back for another year either. It seems whenever we think it's time for a young goalie Lou signs a veteran stopgap (weekes, Danis, moose, etc)

One of Suter or Parise, if not both, will not make it to July 1st. Id not be surprised to see both stay put.

The names Im most intrigued by that I could see us bringing in realistically are Stoll and PA Parenteau. I've been a fan of trading for Stoll in the past and I think he'd be a good fit here. I just can't see it happening. Parenteau is more logical. I don't see Poni coming back, so we will probably replace someone on the offensive side.

If Sal isnt coming back, on the D side, I'd love to poach Carle from the Flyers, but he's going to get a raise from 3.4.

Parise, Stoll, Carle might not be out of reach. I agree gettin Suter will be nearly impossible with a resigning of Parise.

Suter would be impossible to get with or without Parise. He wants to stay in the western conference.
